Coming in April 2019

It looks like we will have to wait another 15 months before we see the final season of Game of Thrones.  Maisie Williams told the Metro:

We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April [2019]. That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There’s a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities. Article.

Wonderful.  Hopefully the writers actually took advantage of the extra time to create a more coherent plot.  I watched Season 6 several times but haven't even looked at Season 7 once it ended.  Too many plot holes and the so-called big scenes at the end of the season were somewhat underwhelming.  Writers obviously ran out of source material and dumbed everything down. 

The ridiculous sortie above the Wall was obviously written to allow the Night King to get his hands on a dragon.  However, the credibility of the show was nearly put on ice by the gaping plot holes.  The books actually provided a plausible plot device, the Horn of Winter.  It would have been more believable if the Night King whipped out the Horn of Winter and brought down the Wall, opening the way for his invasion but that seemed to have escaped D&D's notice.  The writers also fell into the trap of making characters more important than the plot, the avoidance of which had made the series one of the more surprising and plot-twisting tv shows ever.  Tormund should have died in the battle with the Night King but nope, he just had to be saved.  Hopefully we are not going back to the days of where anyone who wears a red shirt should hide.  Then there is the whole incest thing with Dani and Jon. Ewww.  I'm still recovering from Godfather III twenty years ago, not to mention Jaime and Cersai. 

Oh, if you want to see a satire on Game of Thrones, watch this video.  Warning: Content is of a graphic, crude, and sexual nature but is all too true.

Maybe by then you’ll update this site and put away your Blackberry.

Actually we are working on the new version right now. You would be surprised at how many people have said don't change it when I mention it. Main reason is they are used to it and have it figured out.

As for the verification crap, I can't help that. Blame Google. Google, not me, uses recaptcha. I have no control over that. Scribd is using that as well now and its a pain in the ass.

Thanks for the update !

I really hope young Maisie is right. The fans of this "once great" show do deserve a righteous conclusion.
Hell, bring back the writers, producers, directors and such from the first two seasons and everything should be fine.

But I know it's not that simple.

Said don't change it because it is efficient for the reader.

Don't change it because it is like the Drudge Report, classic. The only thing I would change would be more third party content from sponsors or something. Those are fun and they should do it for free.

Whatever that is.

Can't fathom a non-goofy season with the stupid white walker army of dead set-up from last year. Give them all the time they need to try to save it.

Life is too short to watch Game of Thrones. People have been quoting it to me since 2012 and I still have had no interest. The production of new literature and music could have been halted thirty years ago and I wouldn't have even noticed. We have had enough to last us until Jesus comes back since the 80's.

I so agree, 9:28, although I might put the "halt" date a bit further back.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
